Even labor MPs think Brits should vote BREXIT candidates. :lol: :lol: :lol:

To his friends Watson has apparently said that it was “Not the Labour Party I joined”. After his clear interference in the “Nick” VIP pedo ring fiasco I thought he was made to look ridiculous. Nevertheless, he was a restraining influence on the wilder, Momentum side of Labour. They can only get worse now.

Yeah painful for those of us who support Labour in broad terms. If only there was some counter example of a lifelong Tory MP, preferably a 'grandee' one, former minister, perhaps one who was the longest serving Tory MP currently sitting, who would state publicly that they can not and will vote Tory in the up coming GE, to provide some 'balance'. If only.

Poor analogy.

Clarke (like Heseltine) was ever a Europhile and leaves parliament, naturally, at the end of a very long period. Watson is the current deputy leader of the Labour Party and us giving up his career as an important player on the stage. From the sound of it because he disagrees with the party’s direction and leadership. You’re comparing chalk with cheese. :wink:

IIRC Clarke once said he looked forward to a time when the UK Parliament was just the equivalent of a local council chamber in the EU. That was never going to happen, anymore than in most of the 28. A fantasy.

Corbyn? Principled? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I’m going to print that out, frame it and hang it on the wall. A classic! :D

In 50 years of following the ups and downs of UK politics, from Macmillan to Johnson, I can’t think of a more woeful politician, nor another who would have been less qualified to become the leader of the nation. Principled. You’re cracking me up. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It’s such a ridiculous notion I find myself half hoping it happens. From a safe distance of course. :wink:

analogy - a thing which is comparable to something else in significant respects. a correspondence or partial similarity.

So no significant correspondence there then. No degree of 'ouch' , for those who broadly support the Tories, in having Clark say publicly he will not be voting Tory at next GE. No similarities or correspondence in 'Not the party I joined'. No similarity on being a 'restraining influence on the extremes of the party'.

Glad we got that cleared up then :)

Ahh, well, it's a book of course. What would be the point though - really? Somebody who truly believes that Jeremy Corbyn is a man of principle is, frankly, beyond redemption. :wink:

You should join Momentum. It's full of like-minded people.

BTW, I've actually grown quite fond of your profanities. I'll stay that way but only if you solemnly promise not to spell them properly. If you did, that wouldn't be Lordo. :wink:
